Good for you Patricia, and especially that you told her why you were leaving. She needed to know. 

I don't like to read, "Somebody said .... or "Somebody did ... ". Let's name names, places, events, organizations and let the chips fall where they may. We may lose a few friends over it, but with 7 billion plus other people to get to know. who cares!

Patricia, ouch! It hurts to see the reality of life even as it is necessary. We need to be awake to the lives of others, not that we can change what happens, However, we can make some decisions that include thinking of others. Thank you for this dreadful poster.

Of course, atheist have only one creed, and that is no god or superhuman power to guide us or tell us what to do or how to do it or why. Atheist just know what it takes to create a life that is beautiful and healthy. There is no one to clean up after us, no one to sit on our shoulders telling us the sensible thing to do. We just go about our days as though what we do matters. And that one person can make a difference in one life, perhaps and hopefully, more. 

It is not an atheist's burden to clean up after others. It is one person's desire to live in beauty.

I just forwarded that to Freethought Today....  I think they should publish some sort of collection of "Nothing Fails Like (or is more arrogant than) Prayer."

Must be something about atheists to clean up after others.

Oh, now I know. But it's bad for the knees....

Lovely, Patricia! I'm always jealous--at least, envious--of the talents of others, even Belgian dogs!

Must be something about atheists to clean up after others. I take a bag with me on my road walks. Little wonder I'm so misanthropic.

Yes, I like seeing the generations coming up and seeing them doing what I learned. The women of my family were quite level headed, pragmatic and down to Earth. We were so poor and I didn't know it at the time. We had good care and lots of love. For that, I am profoundly grateful.  

Several of my cousins tell how they would go for days having oatmeal for breakfast and macaroni with ketchup for dinner. When they tell the story now, they remember it with some gentle memories of getting through hard time. 

Others in our town had it much harder. People would give grandma old coats. She would remake them into coats to fit us and when we wore the fabric out, she made quilts for a poor family that lived across town. In the autumn, we trudged down the hill, over the bridge and up the other hill to this little tiny shack to deliver blankets. They were the Mitchell family. I wonder what happened to them?

The extraordinary prices on the felt pieces prohibit lots of sales, yet they have great value for one who can afford such things.

Patricia, your needlework piece is beautiful. The colors are just right. Did your learn how to do that yourself, or did you have a mother or grandmother teaching you? 

Comment by Plinius on March 19, 2015 at 1:47am

Beautiful work, Patricia, both the owl and the tiger!

I love a family that can work together, Joan.
